Primary adrenal tumours--a ten-year experience

Abstract

The experience of 31 patients with primary adrenal tumours seen in one teaching hospital over a 10-year period is reviewed. There were 10 patients who had benign cortical adenomas; 11 had adrenal cortical carcinomas, and 10 had phaeochromocytomas, one of which was malignant. During the review period, a primary adrenal mass was discovered in 5% of 2951 autopsies performed in the study institution. The diagnosis and management of these uncommon tumours is reviewed.
